1861 Census

Following the 48 year term of Rev. John Calvert as incumbent of Redmire and Castle Bolton came William Whaley, and then in 1855 young Christian Abraham Manasseh Pauli was appointed by the Hon. Thomas Orde-Powlett. In 1861 he was lodging with the Craddock family:

Catherine F. Pauli doesn't appear on the Redmire census after 1881. She is referenced in the obituary of her husband, George Graham, in The Times January 5 1949. She married George in 1915, the son of Michael Graham, born in Leeds in 1881. George was an accomplished artist, an early and regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy, and was deaf from birth.

1891 Census

In Bulmer's directory from 1890, we learn of Rev. Pauli's salary:

"The townships of Castle Bolton and Redmire now form a separate ecclesiastical district called Bolton-cum-Redmire. The living is a vicarage, worth £180 per annum, including 100 acres of glebe, in the gift of the rector of Wensley, and held by the Rev. Christian Abraham Manasseh Pauli, B.A., since 1856. The register dates from the year 1684."

Several of their children have now left home, but a final new arrival came in late 1881:
